If more applications are received than there are seats available, the school will hold a randomized lottery to determine which applicants are offered a seat for enrollment. All applications submitted within the application window will be referred to the lottery, assuming an application is not a duplicate submission and is otherwise eligible to attend the school.
The lottery for the 2023-2024 school year will be conducted on February 08, 2023. Priority will be given to applicants with siblings, followed by applicants who live in our catchment zip codes. The lottery will be conducted by the school on the Apply Philly Charter system.
Upon application submission, each applicant is automatically assigned a random lottery number. When the lottery is run, it will take the following into account: first, the priority group an applicant falls into, and, second, the applicant’s random lottery number. Seats will first be offered to applicants who fall into the first priority group in order of lowest random lottery number to highest. The lottery will then offer seats to applicants in the second, third, etc. priority groups in order of random lottery numbers until the number of available seats has been exhausted. Applicants not offered a seat through the lottery will be waitlisted in order of their priority group first, and their random lottery number second.
